Present a tag so it is facing the antenna and slowly approach the antenna until the activity LED turns green,
indicating that the reader read the tag. See
antenna is the approximate read range.
NOTE For optimal read results, do not hold the tag at an angle or wave the tag, as this can cause the read
distance to vary.
